A Weiner in hot water?

Anthony Weiner's days of showing his junk online are over, but not his legal problems. Although the father of the teenager at the center of Weiner's last sexting scandal is not pressing charges, according to Fox News, it's possible that local and federal authorities have the legal backup to go after the disgraced/disgraceful former congressman and one-time NYC Mayor hopeful.

The former Democrat and husband of Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, is being investigated by the FBI and the NYPD. As history has shown us, Democrats usually do well with the FBI and apparently have nothing to fear. But the NYPD is another story and they might actually pursue the case.

Neither the young girl nor her dad intend to file a complaint--possibly due out of fear of the Clinton machine. However, even if they don't file, a case can still be made.

"The FBI can absolutely pursue charges against Weiner regardless of the wishes of the minor's father," said Ben Cheeks, a former Manhattan assistant DA and assistant U.S. attorney now in private practice. (Imagine if he and Anthony Weiner got together to form a law firm and called it "Weiner and Cheeks.")

The FBI, which is the investigative arm of the Department of Justice is supposedly probing the case, but Huma may call in a marker and Comey might just let it go with a "He was wrong and showed poor judgment, but his intentions weren't clear. I don't think he intended to actually have sex with that child."

Cheeks said the information so far revealed may not be enough for an indictment (sounds familiar?) but said Weiner's alleged actions "are so viscerally repulsive" that it could lead to new legislation criminalizing his behavior in the future, for which Weiner can take credit for if he chooses to run for New York City Mayor again.

Weiner (aka Carlos Danger) resigned from Congress in 2011 after admitting to sending sexual messages to a 21-year-old Seattle woman. In 2013 he was caught sexting again with an Indiana woman named Sydney Leathers and this scandal ended his mayoral bid. 

Earlier this year he had another online tryst with an unidentified woman in her 40s. Weiner shared a photo of himself in his underwear while his son was at his side. This finally got Huma to file for divorce.

Weiner lied about the incident as he did before, saying he was the victim of a hoax, admitting   "[I] had repeatedly demonstrated terrible judgment about the people I have communicated with online and the things I have sent. I am filled with regret and heartbroken for those I have hurt."

He is certainly full of something.
